Wagering With Ira

October 31st, 2020

Handicapper.

Follow along as JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman makes three NFL picks each week against the spread.

Point spreads courtesy of betMGM app. You may follow various point spreads courtesy of VegasInsider.com as of Friday noon.

UNCLE IRA

New Orleans -4.5
at Chicago

Chicago’s stout defense will slow New Orleans down and keep the Bears in the game.

L.A. Chargers -3
at Denver

Justin Herbert is the real deal, creating havoc with his arm and his legs.

San Francisco
at Seattle -3

Seattle’s porous defense is putting too much pressure on Russell Wilson to bail out the Seahawks. San Francisco is starting to jell.

JOE

Minnesota
at Green Bay -7

The Packers seem to have recovered from their beat down at the Den of Depression. Minnesota looks as if the players are already dreaming of their January vacations in Jamaica. 

N.Y. Jets
at Kansas City -20

Joe was *very* tempted to take the Jets and the points. But the Jets are that lousy and the Chiefs have Pat Mahomes.

Dallas
at Philadelphia -10

The Eagles have Carson Wentz and some decent receivers. Dallas has a garbage defense. And Joe doesn’t even know who will quarterback for the Cowboys. 

Last week: Ira: 2-1,  Joe: 0-3.

Season record: Ira: 14-7,  Joe: 8-13.


*Full list of this week’s spreads.

    Also, lol at your username. How did Chucky do last week?

  11. Joe Says:

    Gee, kind of looks by the record that you don’t know football very well Joe and ira does…

    First, Joe allows Ira the first three picks.

    Think this may demonstrate Ira is better at gambling on the NFL than Joe is. 🙂
